1. Winter’s Coming (The Narrative)
I’m shaking with bruises, I can barely stand my shape, not when every inch, it hesitates and it breaks, and it breaks, and it breaks, and it breaks. And the winter’s coming close, and my body is growing cold, and I’m trembling in fright, oh my. ‘Cause I am a sinner with a crooked smile and you took to the rhythm of a no good liar.
2. Open (Regina Spektor)
In the night, the snow starts falling and everybody stares through their windows at the streetlights: too beautiful to see, I am in a room I’ve built myself, four straight walls, one floor, one ceiling. And day after day, I wake up feeling, day after day, I wake up feeling, feeling
3.Many Funerals (Eisley)
Bring along your tricks and trade, we will lie here, here we lay. And though this ship is out to sea, I’m content to lie peacefully. Young and agile, seaside born, my parents death did I dear mourn. Now in this wicked world risk I, bold endeavors by and by
4.Culling of the Fold (The Decemberists)
Better cut him up boy, and cut him up, girl. Ply her heart with gold and silver, take your sweetheart down to the river, dash her on the paving stones, it may break your heart to break her bones, but someone’s got to do the culling… of the fold. Oh, the culling… of the fold. (Oh, oh, oh, oh!)
5. Dragon Queen (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
How are you not going to show your scar? How are you not going to get high, high? My mouth is touching to your mouth is running. No loving, for nothing. Nobody knock my body out.
6. Will There Be Enough Water? (The Dead Weather)
When I said sail, will there be enough wind? Cool water, oh cool wind. Just because you caught me does that make it a sin? Yeah, just because you caught me, does that make it a sin?
7. My Mirror Speaks (Death Cab for Cutie)
And then my mirror speaks with irreverence like a soldier I can’t command, it sees a child in the body of a full-grown man. And he’s a man who hides from all that binds and a mess of fading lines, and there’s a tangled thread inside his head with nothing on either end, there’s nothing on either end.
8. Rangers (A Fine Frenzy)
Further in and on we go, sightless creatures tugging at our clothes, cutting through the twilight, sword in hand, strangers once united against the land at the sound of the bells. They’re pulling paper lanterns from their shelves.
9. Wildfire Forest (The Spring Standards)
I’ll be your wildfire forest, babe, you’ll be the water rushing over me. Yeah, I need you so bad. But it’s up to you to be good, you see, good for me, so come on, honey, put your worried mind away, at least just for a minute. Even if there’s nothing to say.
10. The Storm, It’s Coming (Glen Hansard)
There’s a storm and it’s a raging in the belly of the slaving, it’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming. And when the wind howls at your gate already it is too late, it’s coming, it’s coming.
11. Going North (Missy Higgins)
Up where the hunted hide with ease under the arms of eyeless trees, up where the answers fall like leaves, oh and your love is all I need, yeah I’m going north.
12. These Stones Will Shout (The Raconteurs)
So if I were to just lay in silence and see if you would take control, these stones below me then may become violent. And they will wrestle me, pester me, mess with me, just tryin’ to free your soul. Speak to me and don’t speak softly, talk to me and let me know, grab hold of my shoulder and tell me, grab hold and do not let go
13. By the Horns (Julia Stone)
We tell half of the story, so we can take the things we need. And some of our efforts are colorful, and some people they lose. And some people live in the shadows so they never have to choose.
